Riot Police Storm Shopping Malls In Hong Kong


Riot police have stormed several shopping malls in Hong Kong as violent anti-government demonstrations continue.

The BBC is reporting at least four people have been injured in a knife attack at the site of one of the latest protests in the territory.

Protesters have been targeting Chinese banks and businesses perceived to have links with Beijing as anger grows over what protesters say are infringements on freedoms guaranteed when Britain returned Hong Kong to China in 1997.

Yesterday was one of the most violent days of the protests.

Xinhua, a Chinese news agency offices were vandalised, while activists also hurled petrol bombs and set fire to metro stations.

So far more than 200 people have been arrested in the 22nd weekend of anti-government demonstrations.

More protests had being planned in seven districts today but riot-police have thwarted some of those attempts already storming a number of shopping malls in the region.
